Soldier of the Pantheon is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed today Sept. 10, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in an article by Frank Lepore on TCGPlayer.com. This rare white creature is a fearsome soldier on the battlefield.
Soldier of the Pantheon - W
Creature - Human Soldier (Rare)
Protection from multicolored
Whenever an opponent casts a multicolored spell, you gain 1 life.
"I hear the gods' voices in my dreams each night, and I offer bloody trophies on their altars each day."
Soldier of the Pantheon can't be targeted by popular multicolored spells such as Abrupt Decay, Detention Sphere, Dreadbore, Izzet Charm, and Warleader's Helix. Some of Standard's most played creatures are gold, and Soldier of the Pantheon can either glide right past them or stop them in their tracks as a blocker. Creatures like:
- Burning Tree-Emissary
- Centaur Healer
- Loxodon Smiter
- Obzedat, Ghost Council
- Rakdos Cackler
- Voice of Resurgence
- And many more
Because Soldier of the Pantheon can help you gain life it'll trigger Archangel of Thune. One idea might be to include Soldier of the Pantheon alongside Tormented Hero in a deck that abuses Xathrid Necromancer. In Modern Soldier of the Pantheon pumps Champion of the Parish.
We have absolutely no doubt Soldier of the Pantheon will see heavy play in a plethora of different constructed decks, perhaps even yours.
How will you use Soldier of the Pantheon?
